    England should declare IMO. They're scoring so fast that they'll soon be way out of reach.

    Wish Healy woul stop being so infuriatingly upbeat. Of all the times to defy your own tendencies...

    Why bother making your bowlers toil on this pitch any longer than you have to? At most declare at Tea and have a 25 over or so spell with the new ball. I think it's more valuable battering the life out of Australia in the field than giving them an opportunity to rebuild a bit of confidence by scoring some runs on a featherbed.

    If Australia want to win the ashes, remove the (c) from Ricky Ponting and give it to Michael Hussey. He's the only guy out there still keen to play cricket.

    He does though, 'cause he's Watto

    Look, I'm not going to pretend this is anything but extremely frustrating, annoying and somewhat depressing. However I'd like to think of this as an abnormality, rather than "then norm" which is what you'd think it was given by the tone of posts in here.

    I'm probably well in the minority in this POV, but meh, am just getting sick of all the pessimism from pretty much everyone about Australian cricket.

    If the new ball swings then there is always a chance of a wicket or two. You never know what you can happen if Australia get put under pressure.

    Was a great day to be an Englishman at the Gabba yesterday

    Gotta work today tho

    I think England should go on to full-on 20/20 mode after lunch and set 290 odd for the Aussies to chase in just over a session.

    Cook 200
